My Kensy, also a Golden, lasted 16 years. The only time I ever saw her desparately panicked was in my dad's Bayliner boat. She loved people, children, other dogs, mud, stinky dead things, and life. She was afraid of thunder and boats.

She died seven years ago, and I haven't had another dog since. I still grieve sometimes, but I'm looking for a "rescue" right now.

Sorry to hear about your loss of Kensy. It is so hard to lose our loyal friends. I grieved every day for the loss of each of my Goldens and the only "cure" for me was to adopt another one. We adopted a "rescue" for the first time back in 1990 and, six Goldens later, swear by that process now. In New England, we have a great resource for "rescue" Goldens -- the Yankee Golden Retriever Rescue (http://www.ygrr.org/). On their links page, they display a map of various Golden rescue groups across the country (http://www.grca-nrc.org/Localrescues.htm). FYI, there are two listed for Georgia:

1) Adopt A Golden Atlanta
2) Golden Retriever Rescue of Atlanta

Good luck in your search and post pics if you adopt one!

I got my chocolate from a breeder and Kai is my first dog ever. I knew nothing about rescue. As I got educated about how disposible some people consider dogs and the plight of shelters all over North America, I decided my next Lab would be from a rescue. Samm came to me all the way from Kansas, thanks to a lot of very dedicated rescue people. I don't think I'll ever get another dog from a breeder.
